Fashion Inspiration- Denim Overalls Collections

The first overalls were assembled in the 1700′s as a preventive measure for stains. Loose fitting and made of tough fabric (not denim) they became a symbol of the working class. Around 1850 they were customized by colors- white for painters, blue for farmers and pinstripe for railroad workers. It was about this time that denim was introduced. Women didn’t start wearing them until the early 1900′s.
